Controlling and Coercive Behaviour: Widening the Net
Since we published our blog “Conveyancing in a time of COVID-19: Can I still exchange contracts on my property?” the Government has revised its advice on moving home.
With affect from 13 May 2020, the Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (England) Regulations 2020, only permitting house moves “where reasonably necessary”, were amended to allow anyone to move home if they wish to do so.
The Government has published a revised guidance note with public health information to ensure that moving home and key activities around this (including viewing, surveys and removals) can happen safely and in accordance with social distancing measures.
The new Government guidance can be read in full on the gov.uk website here.
Some key points to note are:
The new guidance is a huge relief for the housing market as we continue to adapt to “the new normal”.
